Hands are totally fudged, I did less damage to them in a whole month of sailing with no gloves in Australia versus 4 days in Dubai. Need them to recover quickly as the PCC's are in only two weeks. Using mouse instead of pulling on a sheet will help that cause. Going back to the real world after a week of fun in the sun is always such a shocker.
The Autocad skills have been improving dramatically so hopefully I can bang out the rest of the design of the hyb station I building for work before I leave for SoCal. I am excited to get back to my little machine shop and crank out some more bits. My Hull Speed Paint should have arrived by now so will have to sand the foils to get them ready for paint. Rohan took a little chunk out of my leading edge trying to separate my horizontal from my vertical.
Now that I am thinking about it not much of a week off have tons of stuff to do to get ready for the west coast swing....
Final thoughts about Dubai, Chris and Glen are top notch guys. I can't wait to go back and look forward to sailing with them again. The rate at which that place is growing I am sure I will not recognize it next time I go. We did not do anything touristy but I am never really good at that kind of stuff, perfectly happy to go sail and hang at the YC. Big thanks to Gareth who housed me for the week only 400 yards away from my boat.
